From the Back Cover
A single mother is a target—and only one man can protect her.
Tired of waiting for the right man to start a family, Tanya flew halfway around the world alone to adopt her son. On the return flight, she was seated next to a man named Maurice and endured hours of his comments and innuendos. Once they landed in Dallas, he started stalking her—sending gifts, leaving voice mails, following her everywhere . . . finally forcing her to move.
Maurice hires private detective Sonny Mansfield, whose intentions were good when he agreed to help a client locate his missing "ex-wife" and kidnapped "son." But watching Tanya with her little boy, Sonny realizes he's made a terrible mistake by inadvertently leading danger back into her life.
Joining forces to defeat a madman, Sonny and Tanya can't deny the attraction they feel for each other. But their love will be short-lived if they aren't able to escape Maurice for good.

The story is romantic but more importantly, for me anyway, the story was intriguing. You weren't sure what was going to happen - there was some mystery to it. The characters were believable and human. The romance was sweet and not sappy.
Here's what makes the book the best for me, however. The Christian walk that some of the characters have is normal. How many times have I read a Christian fiction book where the characters are either saints or spouting the Gospel at every unconceivable moment? Neither one of these senarios is realistic. Tanya's (the main character) walk with the Lord is real and something I could relate to. She's always trying to do better but isn't a saint that intimidates those around her, including the reader.
I also like the family dynamics in this book. Tanya's relationship with her parents is sweet and truly what family should be like. Her parent's interest and concern for her is wonderful yet never intrusive.
This book is the second book in Debra White Smith's "Lone Star Intrigue" series, however, it totally stands alone. You won't be wondering about what happened before with any of the characters because this story is a story all to itself. If you're like me, though, you're going to want to run out and get the first book, "Texas Heat".
I highly recommend this book. It was just a very pleasant read with lots of wonderful characters and a great storyline.
Sonny Mansfield has a past he regrets and because of that has pretty much hit bottom. He's a good private investigator though and in need of rent money. When Maurice hires him with a bogus story to find his "ex-wife" who stole their adopted boy, Sonny jumps at the chance to make some money. But...Sonny soon realizes that he may have made a mistake. He formulates a plan of how he will protect Tanya and her son. But can he protect them? And will he be able to protect his heart?
This was an Excellent read!! I read the book in one sitting because the pages kept begging to be turned! I totally fell in love with Sonny. He was SO real because he was so flawed. I loved the interaction between all three Mansfield brothers. How they banded together and supported one another just made you want to be in that family. Tanya was a great match for Sonny. She made him see his spiritual need in a non-threatening way. The author did a great job dealing with lots of issues like divorce, infidelity, forgiveness and honesty just to name a few. There is an underlying story of Sonny's older brother Ryan and his ex-wife Shelley. The third book will be their story. You also catch up with Charli and Jack from Texas Heat as Jack helps out Sonny. I highly recommend Texas Pursuit! This story can be read as a stand alone and you won't feel lost but as with most series it's a much richer experience if you read book one first. A thank you goes to the author and publisher for sending me this book to review.
